Fashion Club Gives Back

For the second year in a row our Fashion Club was able to participate in Bella Boutique's annual fundraiser (http://bellaboutiquedenver.org/). Bella Boutique is a Non-profit organization that provides homecoming and prom dresses to students that can not afford them. Last year they provided dresses and accessories to over 100 girls in the Denver metro and surrounding areas. This fundraiser allows them to purchase new dresses and also pay rent for their volunteer led store front. This year we had 6 teams participate in the fundraiser. Students in Fashion Club worked together to take old ugly dresses and transform them into something new and fresh! These dresses were then judged by a panel of local designers for a special Student design Competition, as well as have their final dresses auctioned off in a silent auction with the proceeds benefiting Bella Boutique. This year Fashion Club raised almost $1000 for the organization! Jisel Atencio won the Student design competition based on quality of construction, transformation of the dress, and appeal to the audience.  Congratulations to these talented students!

Last month, the Board of Education passed a resolution tasking the Superintendent to convene a task force inclusive of members of the general public and staff members.

CASTLE ROCK - On February 6, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education confirmed its commitment to begin the process of seeking approval from voters for additional local funding.

“Our children need a bond and mill levy override (MLO) to be passed in 2018, beyond any doubt,” said DCSD Board of Education President David Ray. “We want to move forward immediately with the necessary processes and collaboration with our community in order to finalize a formal funding package.”
